Oceanhouse Media Brings The Great Children's Books Of Byron Barton Into The App Store
In the continued partnership with HarperCollins, Oceanhouse Media is now able to launch a new series of children's books to the App Store in omBook form. Written by acclaimed children's book author Byron Barton, the first entry of this new series and continued collaboration is Planes. Kids see planes soaring through the sky, and most times see them soaring really high. The faint thunderous power of jet planes, rhythm of the helicopter blades, whir of biplanes, splash of seaplanes, and more is all waiting to be discovered. Children won't only learn about the many types of aircraft but will also be taken through a simple and enjoyable explanation of the process of taking an airline flight.

A wonderful combination of capabilities to complement the beautiful artwork of Byron Barton. Planes is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch running iOS 3.2 or later, and available in the App Store at the introductory price of $0.99.
